|HawaiiThreads Picnic (Videoblogging Week 2006: Day Seven) - Ryan Kawailani Ozawa|
Posted for Videoblogging Week 2006. I run a discussion forum dedicated to Hawaii called HawaiiThreads.com, where talkstory about anything and everything is always the special of the day. Today, the site celebrated its second birthday, and some of the regulars (and irregulars) gathered at Kakaako Waterfront Park for a picnic. Food, folks, and fun as they say. Music is "Waiting for Luck to Come" from Waiting For Luck to Come, courtesy Wilfred N and the Grown Men.

|Beach Walk #556 - Golden Silence in Florida|
Turns out I felt a little self-conscious on the crowded beach in Florida and with the sun in my eyes, could not see the little camera screen either, so this is a no-talkie episode. I was thinking about that saying, "Silence is golden" anyway, and will just keep it for another day. I recorded a voice over, but the energy just felt funky; I hope you enjoy the waves, a sight and sound that so far I have not tired of.Hawaiian Word: Hāmau: silencePlease join us over at The Reef.Add this to your Tech...

|Beach Walk #495 - Bottled Water Myths|
You know how I love to use information to inform my behavior and beliefs. Well, I recently read an article in The Week exposing a lot of facts about the bottled water industry. Some I was aware of - like some bottled water is just tap water - not to be confused with true spring water from underground sources. But a lot of it I was not aware of - like 90% of the Eastern Garbage Patch# is plastic, largely plastic water bottles...

We took straight to the water because I am really in an exercise deficit these days. It has fallen off my calendar as I've been busier and busier this year.

|Beach Walk 650 - Co/In/Inter/Dependency|
Earlier this week (Beach Walk 647) I was talking about balancing transparency and privacy. We tend to want it in differing amounts depending on the situation and whether we are giving or receiving. The episode stirred a lot of comments, so I thought I would carry on more as it relates to personal relationships. And invariably the topic of codependency comes up!Hawaiian word: Kūʻokoʻa: independent

|Beach Walk #552 - Bitterness or Bliss?|
We've heard the saying, "Ignorance is Bliss." Does that make the corollary true, "Intelligence is Bitter?" I know that there have been a zillion moments in my life when I've struggled with the enormous amount of non-sense that passes for normal. My #2 finds it incredibly confusing, and that often leads to criticism, harsh judgment, and just plain bitterness when a situation occurs over and over again...

One of my Twitter friends, @Akelatal, pointed me to a funny video the musician John Mayer did - a parody of himself.

Well, no new album, but he is "still doing the tour"http://www.johnmayer.com/blog (see May 4th video), and seeing the one door closed is going to explore what might be behind another one.He didn't freak out and succumb to the pressure to create for some arbitrary reason...

I went on a 5-day silent intensive with Lola Jones a few weeks ago. For me it was pure heaven. I have in the past done 24 hours of silence on my birthday, and loved the clarity I experienced. To be able to ignore all others and go within myself for listening, for sharing, for counsel, was very powerful. There is a lot of noise, especially in my work on the social web (twitter, etc) And much as I love it, I was yearning to talk to the divine, to God directly...

One of the things that stresses me out is all the tasks I collect - business, personal, household, long-range, short-range, recurring and not. Shane, aka Secret Cameraman, recently taught me a method, that so far, I am really liking. I am starting off simple - using a white board and some strategy. If I master this, I will move to the software version. It focuses on collecting everything, but then each day starting fresh with just the things "for today." It supports that "Be here now" philosophy...

Sleep. It is like nectar to me these days. I watched an episode of Sixty Minutes explaining how interrupted or insufficient sleep can lead to premature aging.

On the way, I was realized how futile it has been to try to schedule a recurring time when we know we can slip away for an hour a day.

Given that things are never black and white, I still like having little tricks that can help me 80-90% of the time. In today's case, it is remembering that one of the main causes of crankiness is just plain being tired. I find it so easy to get attached to the crankiness, thinking that some things are the problem, when I might just be due for a decent night's sleep! In fact, just by remembering that point all by itself, I can relax and not let the little things "get to me" regardless of my sleep...

Maybe not feeling so burdened or responsible for things before our time can free us to notice when we are acting under the influence, and choose to act differently now...
